American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the homefront during World War II.

Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials. These women have stories of their war experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in our Archives.

American Rosie the Riveter Association is a patriotic/non-profit organization whose purpose is to recognize and preserve the history and legacy of working women during the war. This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter of Birmingham and now has more than 5,700 members nationwide. Current elected officers from Georgia, Maryland, Texas, Missouri and Alabama all serve on a volunteer basis.

The next Convention will be in New Orleans in June. When plans are finalized, details will be posted on our web site www.rosietheriveter.net and through the media.
